Division 1 – Cup Run Denies Rangers

The 1922/23 season was the 50th season of competitive football in Scotland and the 33rd season of the Scottish Football League.

The manager turned things around at the club and a 10th place finish saw United once again remain in the top flight with good performances. Ironically, however, the league placing was still on 8 points above relegation.

There was the benefit of a good cup run which saw AyrUnited knock eventual league champions Rangers out of the cup in front of a then record crowd of 15,853 – thereby denying the Ibrox club their dream of achieving the ‘double’ in their golden jubilee season.

United fell eventually to Third Lanark in that competition.
